The Best Time to Visit Egypt

If you’re looking for some sun and relaxation then the best time to visit is between May & September. For sightseeing and exploration, try to visit between October – December. You will find that there are less tourists and slightly cooler weather.


Egypt is one of those countries that most people consider ‘unsafe’. After a lot of political trouble, people began to visit Egypt less and less. However, now the situation is much more stable and this leaves Egypt another beautiful place to visit.

Whilst we have only visited a small amount of Egypt, we wanted to share everything that we have learnt along the way with you.

You can check out our guides below and the best things you can do when exploring Egypt and in particular Hurghada. We can’t wait for our next trip to Egypt and to also finally visit the pyramids too! Who goes to Egypt and doesn’t visit the pyramids?! *facepalm*
